it running through all of this discussion of all of the polices. are our elected officials making policy decisions that are sustainable? that promote equity? or are they for-sale to the highest bidder? these are the things that we need to address, otherwise you will have the exact same problems of people asking for more and more people and creating a city where there is very wealthy and very poor people. so i would like to give a quick shout out in that direction to supervisor olague, who is having the san francisco housing authority try to film its meetings. it doesn't even meet at city hall and this is the kind of inequity i'm talking about. we need accountability. so i appreciate that and we need that. thank you. >> thank you, mr. everett. >> i'm the type the progressive who grieves believes that we're only as wealthy as the least among us. so means that in san francisco we can only go as far as the african-american young men and women who have been economically disadvantaged for generations here in the city. we need to provide jobs. with when we talk about green jobs of future a

big changes in our climate, so the next president will have to deal with that. and if you elect romney, he's going to be heading a political party who doesn't believe it's heading a political party that doesn't believe it's a problem. >> thank you for being on the "ed show." the rachel maddow show is next. >> thanks, ed, happy halloween. my halloween costume again this year is middle-agedle lesles ll lesbian in a cheap jacket. it's halloween where ever it can be halloween. this year it is not everywhere because it cannot be. governor christie postponed it. it will be moved to monday, november 5th to protect new jersey's young trick or treaters. crews were fixes falling power lines. nearly two million households in new jersey are still without electricity today. in reference of how much of the country that means, even if there was one person in each household without pour, even if it was just one, it would mean there are more people in day three of no power in just new jersey than the population of each of these states marked on the map. this is a huge number of americans here. i
. in the years leading up to the presidential election, the focus seems to be on barack obama's roots and his family and the fact that he wrote his own biography. now in your book "american tapestry," you put the focus on michele obama. tell us about how you got started doing that and what inspired you. >> i was writing about the first lady and the first family for the new york times which was something of an unusual assignment. typically the first family is covered by the white house reporters who chased the president around on air force one and in the briefing room and write about the first lady or first family when they have time that there was a sense in 2008 at the new york times and other newspapers too that we might want to do things differently and this first african-american family living in this house, this white house bill in part by slave labor, with slave labor would be written about regeneration to come and we wanted it to be part of documenting and chronicling that story. in january, before the inauguration, one of my colleagues was writing an article about the president and hi
for a while. portions of the northeast could be without power maybe until election day, do we think in. >> yes, yes. the weather is very impactful to the weather from a turnout perspective anyway. we've done research that shows 30% to 35% of independent voters will not vote if the weather's bad. not only on top of that, we have upwards perhaps of 10 million people losing power this week. i'm sure there won't be that many by election day but it will be very disruptive, as well as disruptive to the campaigns. it throws a monkey wrench into the entire campaign and election. >> we don't know if there will be alternative plans as a result of that. i mean, already we were hearing earlier that the administration was considering not releasing the jobs numbers on friday. what are the alternative plans if, in fact, this does impact election day and the opportunity for those independents to vote? >> i think it could get really, really complicated and state by state. i don't i think we'll know unless the dust clears. it's an unprecedented event. you overlay it on timing before the week of the election, ma
:30 eastern which up until then with an election a few days away a look at new hampshire. >> fst past week we've been taking a look at nine swing states and today we put the spotlight on the state of new hampshire. with the small state up in the northeast corner holding 4 electoral votes. right now its unemployment rathe 5.7%. and president obama won this state by a large margin back in 2008 with 9%. let's begin with top issues for new hampshire voters. guest: good morning. and before i get started i want to thank c-span and c-span radio on 15 years being on the year. it's been a very valuable resource for some of us. up here in new hampshire we are a swing state four electoral votes. it sound like a small number. but if al gore had won the four votes he would have become president. so they are very important and this state right now is a toss up. the issues are a little bit different here in new hampshire than they would be across the country. unlike a state like nevada that has a higher unemployment rate, new hampshire is at 5.7%. that's higher than it was all summer around 5.2%. this means
first election then when i was paying attention to anything and his significance under the campaign in the country gave a lot of strength to millions of people in this country that still last today although people don't always see the results we expect. i want to mention the passing of russell means and from the american indian movement and from the bay area and his contributions to the united states is significant and the 60's and two individuals who have made a great difference in our nation's history. the other thing i am introducing today is a resolution. colleagues you may have heard reports in the media privacy related to the clipper cards. i think it's important -- can't make sure that people who are using clipper cards can be protected against any use of information about how where they go and the whereabouts are using the clipper card to make sure they're protected so i am intriewtion a resolution calling on the metropolitan transportation commission and we have consistency with transit and track usage with transportation and passes and transit passes and that is mine f
and get results and i have been effective as elected official for eight years and i will bring that into the board of supervisors. thank you very much. >> i am bob squarey. i live in san francisco. the 49ers were founded in 46 in my honor. i want to thank them -- [laughter] i will be given my season tickets up when i leave the city. i had them for over 40 years. they're gone but with that said i started two successful businesses in san francisco. i have a childrens' foundation "one children at a time inc." and did jobs around the world and every nickel i raised go to helping the kids. i will bring a strong budget control initiative to san francisco and i will show it by opening my district office in either on ocean avenue, lake side, and out of the money they give i will take a part of that fund and pay for that office in san francisco, but i will open it in the district so i will serve the people. bob squirey. i appreciate your support. >> thank you. mr. rogers. >> i am glen rogers and a native son of san francisco. i went to school here wanting to do public service
say the election should not be affected by sandy, but there are signs that may no longer be true and news just in from the cia. a new timeline of the events in libya. what it says about the administration's response. let's go "outfront." good evening. tonight, the wreckage. millions growing more desperate as they struggle to cope with the loss of homes, power and family in the wake of hurricane sandy. the u.s. death toll has risen to 88. 44 in new york state alone and the number continues to grow as many people are still missing. i spent the day on staten island where more have died in new york than anywhere else. some of the worst devastation is here and people told us they're not getting enough help as we visited some of the hardest hit areas with congressman michael brim, searchers discovered the body of two young boys. ageing 2 and 4, in the march. they were swept from their mother's arms. some were hoping for a miracle. there was no one today. >> we've confirmed four bodies. the two children they were looking for, they found the bodies. also in a different location, found an
